Friends

I get so excited when a new episode is released! I feel like Jolenta and Kristen are my friends 😝

Boho Bookworm ,

I LOVE this podcast!!

Kristen & Jolenta are absolutely brilliant. I love the way they implement the things these books say into their lives and document it like an experiment with their partners and friends.
They are hilarious and so real. While there's so much humor in this podcast it can also get really deep. They really share everything in their lives so it truly feels like you know them!
I could listen to them all day!
Keep it up ladies - Jade from the Books & Booze podcast.

Kirsty Kirst ,

Awesome, funny, genuinely feel good.

It will save you a fortune because you won’t be spending money on crappy self help books. Instead, you can focus on investing your time and energy into the few worthwhile ones you hear about on some of the episodes. The hosts are awesome and listening to this podcast always puts me in a good mood.
